As the Netflix reality show returns, its virtuosoes descend on the urban Australian city of Yass to record a mini chapter and explain the secrets of their gargantuan success
Jonathan Van Ness screams- and then starts crying. The Queer Eye starring is sitting in a automobile on a cattle farm in the urban Australian township of Yass, New South Wales. As the snaps stream down his face, he begins filming himself on his phone.
” I merely found out Michelle Kwan followed me on Instagram and lost my mind ,” he tells his followers- close to a million of them on the social network, the latest of whom is the retired Olympian figure skater.
His co-star Karamo Brown pas his head into frame:” Oh, Michelle ,” he coos, tenderly scratching his friend’s forearm.” You shaped our baby’s dream is true !”
The resulting post, which has had almost 1m considers at the time of writing, is solid Queer Eye content, encapsulating not only what fans of the reality show love about Van Ness( his inexhaustible folly ), but too the whole cast’s feelgood earnestness, the euphorium they take in each other and their eagerness to play up every charming moment and communicate it directly to social media.
Van Ness( 31, the grooming expert ), Brown( 37, culture ), Antoni Porowski( 34, meat ), Bobby Berk( 36, designing) and Tan France( 35, way) are in Yass to film a mini webisode to promote the second series of Queer Eye, in which they make over a neighbourhood farmer, George, and a inn. The location was selected thanks to the pun: as Van Ness justifies to the taciturn George: “‘ Yas queen’ is a major slogan for the homosexuals and the brunch-going ladies “of the worlds” .”
